Admitted Adulterer Newt Gingrich Says Obama is Anti-God
Oil lobbyist Newt Gingrich, who has been married three times and has admitted to committing adultery, tossed a few stones at the Obama administration in his book and on a subsequent Fox News broadcast while hawking of his book. The disgraced former Speaker of the House claims the Obama administration opposes God and is comparable to the Nazis and the Soviet Union.
Newt Gingrich has made headlines recently by writing in his new book, To Save America, that the Obama administration’s “secular socialist machine” represents “as great a threat to America as Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union.” Even Fox News hosts have questioned whether Newt went a bit too far with the comparison. Last night, Fox host Greta Van Susteren wondered as well:
VAN SUSTEREN: All right, Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. Go a little far on that one?
GINGRICH: No. Because I’m not talking about moral equivalence of the people, I’m talking about the end result. If the Nazis had defeated us, then America as we know it would have disappeared. If the Soviet Union had defeated us, the America as we know it would have disappeared. I argue in this book — and I think it’s a pretty reasoned and compelling argument — that the fact is, the values of a secular socialist movement are antithetical — and you hear from President Obama all the time. … The secular socialist left doesn’t want God anywhere in public life and doesn’t want to acknowledge God anywhere in public life.:
Of course, Gingrich never provides any actual evidence of this alleged “threat.” And it’s unclear exactly what Gingrich is hearing from the President “all the time,” but it certainly isn’t anything about taking God out of public life or turning America into a socialist state. In fact, Obama (and the Vice President, the House Speaker and the Senate Majority Leader) regularly refers to God in public statements and speeches. The Obama administration is even appealing a court decision that found the National Day of Prayer unconstitutional.
